the united states senate and the congress unanimously passed a measure to bolster mental health reporting requirements on background checks. some states like mine, texas, have received high marks for their compliance but many states have essentially been noncompliant and the department of justice has failed to adequately back up implementation of the law so essentially the law that we passed in the wake of the virginia tech shootings that require reporting of people that are judah kate at mentally ill in their respective states is not working the way it should. rather than just string along and ineffective program i think this is a wonderful opportunity for us to fix fix it and we shod fix fix it. i want to say just a word though about symbolism versus solutions. i am not interested in congress voting on a measure that would have no impact on the horrific violence we have seen in recent months. i am not interested in a symbolic gesture which would offer the families of the sandy hook shooting the old real solutions that they seek. to a person they told me they are not political, they don'
in the united states senate, compromise is being offered on something that 92% of the american people agree with. universal background checks. universal background checks to keep guns out of the hands of terrorists. the united states of america is by adam, an ed american al qaeda on the f.b.i.'s most wanted list who taunts america and says this, you can see it on buzz feed, america is absolutely awash with . sily attainable firearms large capacity clips. you can get them even without ny identification. this from the most wanted on the f.b.i. list. we need to vote in the united states congress. if these young children had the courage to go after their assailant, if the teachers stepped in the way to protect, does congress have the will and the courage to stand up and merely do what it was elected to do? cast a vote in both chambers. cast a vote on behalf of the american people. cast a vote on behalf of these children, on behalf of these parents who have come here to besiege the united states its ess only to do responsibility, to do what we .ake the oath of office for 92% of the american people b
states senate. >> reporter: who recorded mitch mccontinue talking with senate staff during a strategy session in their office on february 2nd and who leaked the tape to the liberal magazine mother jones which published portions of it on tuesday, they have questioned two men. one is shawn riley an activist here is attending the convention as a delegate. another is official from jefferson county. conway told fox news that riley the founder of a local super pac and reputed associate curtis morrison had bragged about making the recording within a day after the conversation had occurred. >> they directly admitted to you they tape-recorded senator mcconnell and campaign aides in those campaign headquarters? >> they told me they were there. they told me they were in the hallway. they had a recording. you can draw your own conclusions. >> at the time, conway said he hadn't spoken to f.b.i. but by the evening they changed. >> they overheard the conversation and so offended by the disgusting conversation that was taking place, they decided to report it. i told the f.b.i. everything i told you,

that mitt romney would be president, that republicans would win the majority in the united states senate, that there would be a three-way majority between the house, the senate and the presidency and we could put america back on the right track. i hoped for that, mr. speaker. i prayed for that. i worked for it, but i watched as though as the election results came to be untrue as we lost some seats here in the house and lost some seats in the senate and, of course, the president was re-elected that night and the plans of probably half, very close to half of the american people had to be changed and altered because we planned to put free enterprise back in place, we planned to repeal obamacare, we planned to do some other things, but one of the things we didn't really plan so much to do was take up the immigration issue in the 113th congress. . even though ip gracious was hardly a blip. and if it was debated, it was debated in iowa loo likely debated in iowa the first and longest. as i tune my ear to these issues, i didn't notice it was a paramournt topic or a plank in barack obama barack

"happening now.". rick: fox news alert. news out of d.c. the united states senate rejected effort to block debate on new gun control legislation. the senate voting 68-31 to allow debate to go on. 16 republican senators voted in favor of the debate. two democrats voted against the debate. this does not mean all of sudden there are new gun laws on the books. it simply means the senate will debate new gun legislation for the first time in 20 years. the deal worked out, bipartisan deal on expanded background checks will most likely be a part of what they will be debating. there will be other amendments as well. still a long way to go before any new gun legislation gets to the president's desk. but the first hurdle at least has been overcome. jenna: more on that as we get it. meantime the dairy industry is looking for a sweet deal, pun intended hoping to add sweetener to make. fda considering this proposal but the plan is coming under fire from some farmers and as well as some consumer groups as well. doug kennedy is live at our new york city newsroom. not to confuse my dougs in my life. there

states senator, but the idea that i can't get the information, you know, that i need to see the studies that you are doing. and again, i've got trust in the agency but with oversight of the agency. i just don't understand that. >> senator, the information that we have not been able to gather and share is information that is confidential. it relates to medical records and information that can trace back to specific people. and we are required to protect that as a scientist. having said that, if there's anything that we can do to build a more trust these him and on him and him and him and the redacted as far as coming in, the people in that sort of thing. again, you don't have a bunch of information that you shouldn't have dumped out that you know what you shouldn't have dumped out with peoples names and all this kind of stuff. again, we talk about transparency in business. i don't know that there's, in any other area of research, those things are taken care of word you redact, you do this and that, names, things like that. but the basic science, there's just no excuse. >> i am more than
floor as well as in cooperation with their colleagues and ours at the united states senate. i urge my colleagues to vote no on the rule and yes on the underlying bill and i would yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back his time. the gentleman from georgia. mr. woodall: thank you, mr. speaker. i yield myself the balance of me time. i thank my friend from florida for his service on the rules committee and his service on the intelligence committee. the work that goes on on the intelligence committee, mr. speaker is work that so many members of congress co-not involve themselves in. it goes on deep in the bowls of the cap -- bowels of the capitol complex, it's great security, all electronic devices left outside the door, they can discuss things within the four twhifles committee that we're not allowed to discuss things. when they asked me to hand they will rule, i was concerned, because throughout this process of developing cispa, i've traveled down to that committee room time and time again in order to understand the threats that this nation

over the border in united states. there hasn't been that much net immigration over that period of time. partly because the economy shear not as great as it was a half decade ago and partly because the fertility rate has dropped considerably. there is not much of a need to go north to find jobs. >> as you know the house is working on an immigration overhaul plan, as well. what do you think the house plan will align with the gang of eight's plan? >> there is their own version. there is another gang of eight and they are working on a bipartisan plan as well. some of the details that ever leaked out, roughly similar to what the gang of eight is working on in the senate. the whole question is once that passes the senate and the house, has their own bill, what will happen in the house? will republicans rally around the bill? will speaker boehner have to support a bill that is not supported by the majority of the republicans in the caucus? it may depend on democrats to pass it. so that is up in the air. while legislators may be cautiously optimistic with a deal being done in the house and sen
adjourned until that articulated the consensus in the united states and was very simple and very clear the purpose of the war and it is not to disrupt the social institutions of the self and everybody knew what that meant. it meant not to disrupt slavery. earlier today national intelligence director james clapper testified on automatic budget cuts and national security. he believes those cuts are making the u.s. less safe and he explained why during the hearing held by the senate armed services committee. it's a little more than two hours [inaudible conversations] >> good morning everybody. the committee meets this morning to hear from the director of national intelligence james clapper and lieutenant general, director of the defense intelligence agency spa capano current thfureat to the national securi. along with the national security agency, the national geospatial intelligence agency and the national reconnaissanceoffice and thinteencen etservices erts of the department of de that are also elements of the intelligence communy thatth direct clapper hits. director clapper while much
government, local units of getting, getting the senate involvement in it and that. so i'd like maybe you to reflect on and tell us things you think. i know, there's good operation. everybody has gotten your budget cut. you have gotten your budget cut. that means fewer people, you know, doing boater education on zebra mussel. you have fewer people talking about, you know, one problem we have incurred in the national forseeses. people fish along stream and used to dump the earthworms, you know, thinking this is good. they help the forest. i remember doing it as a kid. there wasn't any education, there wasn't any discussion about it. there was a research about what it meant when everybody was dumping their earthworms around trees. so do not! they don't in to -- [inaudible] [laughter] no. but if you could just kind of, you know, tell us a little bit about how, you know, maybe we have an endangered species legislation. maybe we need an invasive species legislation. maybe we need to talk about how we put all hands on deck both at the national, federal, local and community level on dealing with
have died at the end of a gun. thousands of other families across the united states are also drowning in our grief. please help us do something before our tragedy many billions your tragedy. gregg: former new york senator al d'amato is a fox news contributor. he joins us here on the set. pleasure to see you. >> good to be with you. gregg: the president is utilizing the newtown families to make his case for gun control but in some ways is he exploiting this tragedy and the grieving families for political purposes? >> well the answer is yes but it is very effective. gregg: is it unseemly? >> no. gregg: why not? >> i don't believe so. gregg: really? >> yeah. you know, i've got 3-year-old and 5-year-old. it is heart-wrenching when someone is lost like this woman her 6-year-old child comes on, says, look you've got to do something. notwithstanding i believe in the second amendment. there are things and legislation pending now that can and will make it tougher for people who shouldn't get guns to get them. it will not correct all of the problems and so, it is a very effective political tool
to the president of the united states as well and both letters have pretty much not been responded to. >> greta: pretty much or not responded to at all. >> at least until tonight. >> greta: tonight you got a phone call from whom? >> from senator are marco rubio's staff. they are trying to set up a phone call with us this weekend. i think the big concern with that is this bill, this legislation on immigration reform is actually going to get dropped on tuesday. and now the senators coming to us over the weekend wanting to talk. how are we going have time to read through the 1500-pages of legislation and have input on the 1500 pages of legislation and have an impact. from our position this has to be delayed this week for law enforcement officers to actually have input and we think that is extremely important because we are the ones that do the jobs. we are the ones that see exactly why this immigration system is so broken and it is -- we are in shock right now you quite frankly that law enforcement hasn't been a part of this and we have been prohibited from having any kind of input. >> greta: i th
amnesty to those who entered the united states illegally. the florida republican says there will be consequence for having violated the law. heis proposal would require people to pass a rigorous background check and pay fines and application fees to receive a permit that allowed them to work, travel and pay taxes. after 10 years they could be able to apply for legal immigration status and evenfall path to citizenship under the proposal, the applicant would not be eligible for any federal benefits such as health care. >> today the supreme court grapples with the question of whether human genes can be passed, it's a ultimate answer could reshape the u.s. medical research, the fight against disease like breast and ovarian cancer at the multi-billion dollar medical and biotechnology businesses. the u.s. patent and trademark office has been awarding patents on human genes for almost 30 years. off company said they're risking billions of dollars to conduct research on the the promise of such patterns. the american civil liberties union just jealous those batons, arguing that
of the united states, which is in his statement of administrative policy, which i entered into the record last night in the rules committee. and just as importantly, a bill that has no positive impact on the most important issue facing our country today, job creation, economic growth. mr. speaker, this bill is an attack on american workers, this bill is an attack on american businesses. pure and simple h.r. 1120 would effectively shut down the national labor relations board, invalidate all 569 decisions that the nlrb made between january 12 and march of this year. my colleagues claim this is a response to the d.c. circuit court decision. but when have we ever enshrined an intermediate court decision into statute? it makes absolutely no sense. this court decision found that nearly all recess appointments are invalid, but the reality is the decision of the d.c. circuit conflicts entirely with judicial precedent and past practices. president reagan made 232 recess appointments. george h.w. bush made 78. george w. bush made 171. so far president obama has made 3 . -- 32. far less than his predeces
of congress that was passed in 1986 by then a senator of arkansas designed to protect the caught in the united states that protect u.s. taxpayers' money and other countries' industries. you know, u.s. aid could have gone to the white house to get a waiver but nobody wanted to take it on so you have legions of the farmers say we want help growing this. american bureaucrats say sorry we will help you with this. >> this is so much a part of the history of afghanistan. as you know when he was referring to the great movie charlie wilson's war seeing it come right before my favorite scene which is when charlie wilson is talking to sitting on the balcony of the watergate hotel talking to the cia agent and this is a scene that is and in the book of the director added it is the lesson of the master which is a boy gets a horse and everyone in the village says it's wonderful he got a horse and than the master says we will see. then he falls down and smashes his leg and cripples him for ever and they see this is so horrible and he says we will see. then the war breaks out in afghanistan. and everyone is c
to 11 million people will really hurt blue-collar workers in the united states. here he is speaking on this week yesterday. >> i think the public interest is to figure out how we can deal with the crisis we face. how we can have a lawful system that service the national interest without hammering the civil rights commission members have said the average low-income workers, the african-american and hispanic worker that's here. >> reporter: senator rubio goes to great pains tosy this is not amnesty for illegals. there will be penalties involved, fines involved for people in the country illegally. they also have to pay taxes which is something they presently do not do. there will also be e-verify think biwhich employers hire nibble legal or with a green card or granted citizenship has to verify their citizenship through the database. jenna: a lot to do on this bill. doug, thanks very much. >> reporter: sure. rick: it comes exactly on one day a year, tax day. most of us do not look forward to it. in fact this year is the 100th anniversary of the federal income tax. it takes the average
arms from sources other than the united states? >> it has. that's reported in open source but it has. >> so the lack of arms has not been the decisive issue in terms of the conflict on ground in serious? >> not in my military judgment. there's no shortage of arms in syria. >> what is the problem? and perhaps is not as evident a year ago is, and i must say the surprising durability of assad, but also the continued incoherence of the opposition. is that a fair statement the? >> yes your. >> and our policy priority has been i think even back then and going forward for this year and going, continuing forward, is to try to build a coherent, inclusive opposition as the key strategic element in resolving this situation. is that a fair judgment? >> it is there, and it is even more important now with the coalescing of these extremist groups. so now you have got the moderate opposition becomes more important. >> and there's another aspect of this issue just at the level of conflict. that is, it's not simply supplying the opposition. it somehow interdicting support for the assad regime. the cha
